College Reopening

We are pleased to confirm that Carlisle College began welcoming students back to College from Monday 15 March 2021. It’s great to have you back where we can fully support you to succeed. Learning continues to be a blend of onsite learning, taking place in College, and online learning.

Keeping You Safe

We want to reassure you that your safety remains our highest priority and we’re working hard to make sure that College remains a safe place to learn. This means that there will continue to be safety measures in place across College for the foreseeable future. Please remember to wear a face covering wherever you are in College, keep your distance from others and follow all of the safety reminders in place

You MUST NOT attend College if you are displaying symptoms or live with anyone displaying symptoms of Covid-19.

If you, or someone you live with, is classed as extremely clinically vulnerable you do not need to return to College. Your tutor will provide you with details of how we will continue to support you until you are able to return.

Student Testing

As you know, we’ve been busy testing students and staff in College since we reopened, to help identify anyone who may be carrying the Covid-19 virus without any symptoms and help stop the spread across our college.

We’re now able to offer students home testing kits. This means you can test yourself quickly and easily at home, twice each week and report your results back to us and the NHS online. Home test kits will be issued initially to those who have already completed a Covid test in College over the past few weeks and have provided consent.

Your home testing should commence week commencing 29th March and continue during any holiday periods such as the Easter break.

All Carlisle College students have been contacted directly via email regarding home testing, including information for those students who would like to take part in home testing but have NOT yet completed a test onsite.
